Topic outline

  • General

    Our SHOUTOUT4SDGs project was all about encouraging Universities to make the UN SDGs more explicit in their teaching and everyday activities.  More widely, it was about:
    SDGS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY – ֎ OUR ROLE IN A REFLECTIVE AND RESPONSIBLE WORLD ֎

    During this afternoon of talks we’ll explore:
    – SDGs and quality education with particular focus on HE+SDGs
    – SDGs – how we move from theory to practice?
    – SDGs – national achievements, good examples

    Why does quality education matter?  How do the SDGs actually become a reality to our daily lives?  Where are the examples of progress and achievement?  Are we going to make it in time to the 2030 SDG deadline?
